Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.


Two Bronze Age bowl barrows and three mounds on Corfe Common. A Bronze Age urn in the British Museum mau have come from one of these barrows, though it is equally likely to derive from one of the other barrows in the area (see SY 98 SE 16, 17 and 32).
